Likud MK David Amsalem lashes out at new Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, claiming he is an “illegitimate premier” because he only won six mandates in the last election.

“It’s legal but it stinks,” he says in a Channel 12 interview.

Asked why then former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered Bennett the same position in a rotational agreement just weeks ago, Amsalem says he disagreed with the move.

The Likud MK acknowledges that Bennett is now the prime minister of Israel, but claims Bennett has “ruined the entire political system” and that the media was part of the effort.
